WHAT'S TAKING BACK PRIDE NOW Volunteer Mackenzie John Miller, organizer Jordan Fife Hunt, endorser Marti Gould Cummings, Jamie McGonnigal, Robin McGehee and volunteer Natasha Dillon . THROUGH ALL THE GLITTER, rainbow flags, parties and booze it is easy to forget that the Gay Pride March is actually a protest as much as it is a celebration. That is why several fed-up activists-- including Jamie McGonnigal, Lt. Dan Choi, Robin McGehee and Alan L. Bounville--decided to remind New Yorkers that the fight is not yet over. They have created Taking Back Pride (TakeBackPride.org), a grassroots campaign to bring the political agenda back to Pride. "We aren't pushing any individual group's agenda," says McGonnigal, 34, about the campaign. "We are using the [gay pride] March to educate those who attend."They point out that in addition to topics discussed frequently in the media like Don't Ask, Don't Tell and marriage equality, there are many inequalities that the community doesn't realize exist, like the fact that in over two dozen states--including New York--you can still be fired and evicted just for being gay. "We aren't asking anyone to go anywhere they weren't already planning to go," says community organizer McGehee, 36."We're merely asking people to do what they want to do [during Pride], but work to 22 JUNE 18, 2010 PHOTO: SHOT EXCLUSIVLEY FOR NEXT MAGAZINE BY WILSONMODELS incorporate more of our activist history, by carrying a sign, bringing a bullhorn, etc." Taking Back Pride has already garnered a lot of buzz from celebrities and nonprofit groups like Queer Rising and Heritage of Pride, something that has been missing from the gay community for a while. "Being LGBT is only a part of who [the gay community] is; therefore people sometimes have other priorities," explains McGehee about reasons for apathy. "But we feel that if we highlight the truth that we are second-class citizens, maybe we'll be moving us all towards less apathy and more equality." But don't take their word for it--see the excitement for yourself at this year's Pride March on June 27. Anyone can join the Taking Back Pride campaign, whether marching or watching from the sidelines. As Bounville, 33, reminds, "either way, don't show up to the march without a sign!" --Benjamin Solomon 24 JUNE 18, 2010 WELCOM QUEERS E TO AMERIC A. A NEX T MA ARE C APTAINS O GAY AMERIC A.

I was scared shitless but I knew it would be a life-changing journey regardless of the outcome. Reality TV is anything but "real." It's heavily controlled by the producers to make the best TV possible. When we filled out our initial 50-page application to be on the show, we were asked if there was any aspect of our lives that we would not discuss on camera. I answered, "no." At the time, I had been living with HIV for 18 years and was very open about it so I knew it would be a topic of interest. But I didn't go into the show thinking, "I'm going to be the HIV+ guy" and I had no idea what impact my disclosure would have. However, in the back of my mind, I knew I could help others living with HIV by showing that it's possible to live a happy, successful life while managing HIV. PROJECT RUNWAY'S JACK MACKENROTH WANTS TO BE A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL. I JACK MACKENROTH: "I didn't go into the show thinking, "I'm going to be the HIV+ guy" and I had no idea what impact my disclosure would have." I had been living in New York and designing for 17 years at that point and considered my HIV status an afterthought since I had been dealing with it for so long. I didn't foresee the ripple effect that talking about it on television would have. I also never envisioned the international impact my disclosure would have as my season of Runway aired in more than 20 countries. (I'm currently getting Facebook messages from Budapest!) However, the positive response was almost immediate. The show producers handled it well and my status was disclosed on the second episode of the season. Tim Gunn was extremely supportive. I know from the messages and e-mails I receive that I have helped many people around the world by just being one face of HIV. My hope is to inspire others to deal with their own status and to be open and fight the stigma of HIV for all of us. I am proud to be a current HIV+ poster boy. I encourage others to come forward and stand with me. Prevention remains paramount but for those who are already living with HIV, we need to take good care of ourselves--and each other.

JUNE 18, 2010 33 BY RANDY JONES THAT `70s SHOW THE VILLAGE PEOPLE'S RANDY JONES ON BEING YOUNG, GAY AND IN NEW YORK IN THE 1970s. of sexuality. It was not a rare sight to see men cruising about the streets of said neighborhood in the hyper-masculine outfits of a biker, albeit in leather chaps with a bare ass exposed, a construction worker complete with hardhat and work boots--and yes, even the ultimate of all American icons, the cowboy! This was all part of my welcome to world of 1970s New York! From the get-go, running as a model with the likes of Janice Dickinson, Grace Jones, et al, was akin to being embraced into the comforting bosom of the most generous and gracious Madame in the world--New York City! Little did I realize that working with Grace Jones on her first album and show would lead me to the producers of the progenitor of all boy bands, Village People. They saw me performing with Grace in her groundbreaking show and asked me to join them in their new venture and I fortunately (for me) said yes! Little did I know what [would] follow. RANDY JONES: "We were perhaps the last generation in America that had the ability to live life in the moment. A generation free from the tethers of cell phones, 24-hour cable news, texting, sexting, voicemail." It was 1977. The height of the disco era. And being a founding member of Village People, the experience was [filled] with all the perks that one can imagine would accompany pop stardom. With instant fame and notoriety came instant universal sex appeal. For several years life was a whirlwind of nonstop activity. I didn't hear the word "no" very often. Nearly four decades later, after a multiplatinum music career, after films, television, and yes, a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame (located between film star Betty Grable and Liberace), I still love all life has to offer. I still have a positive attitude. My life has been and continues to be a blessing and a phenomenal experience and this has always been my desire: to live in an open and honest way. N Randy Jones is an actor, writer, singer and founding member of Village People. He can currently be seen in the film Violet Tendencies. Visit RandyJonesWorld.com for more info. ew York City in the '70s was a wonderland to a young man coming from the South. The West Side Highway was still in existence with all its crumbling decadent grandeur, the World Trade Center towers were fresh landmarks on Manhattan's southern skyline and the Village was indeed the hothouse of inspiration for much of the early LGBT movement in New York. And I was blessed to be in the thick of it! When I first got to town, I found an apartment in the Village--and I never left the neighborhood! This era in New York was one pregnant with the sensation of coming liberation. We were the generation raised in the '60s on the civil, women's and gay rights movements. We were the generation that repeated the mantra, "If it feels good, do it--as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else!" The generation that became of age N in the'70s lived and breathed the philosophies of the social revolutions of the late '50s and '60s. We were perhaps the last generation in America that had the ultimate ability to actually live life in the moment. A generation that was free from the tethers of cell phones, 24-hour cable news, texting, sexting, voicemail. A generation that experienced a wonderful na�vet� of near complete sexual freedom. Freedom for all to explore and to be curious about, including gay, straight and bicurious folk. And anything that one may have contracted could be taken care of with a shot of penicillin or a dose of Kwell lotion. Christopher Street and various other lanes in the West Village were open markets for making sexual contact with others of like-mindedness. Bars, clubs and bathhouses abounded and were always busy with folk relishing the newly felt freedom to experience the expanding envelope 34 JUNE 18, 2010 BY JASON GOLDBERG GAY 2.1 W FABULIS.COM FOUNDER JASON GOLDBERG HERALDS THE RISE OF THE GAY GEEK hat's the hottest trend in gayville these days? You might be surprised. It's not sequins. It's not leather. It's not partying until the next afternoon. It's not even Gaga. It's geek. That's right. Geek is hot. In 2010, there's nothing hotter than a guy who follows you, friends you, tweets, tags, texts, checks in, votes you up and spends his virtual bits to express how fab he thinks you are. Want to get me going? Talk to me about your motherboard. Show me your hard drive. Speak to me in ruby and in rails. Give me some PHP and some SQL. Let me see you Wordpress. Tumblr. Invite me to feed your fish and rub your crops. Formspring.me. Digg me. Like me. Random roulette cam me. Sign up for a power play. Make like Kurt and Glee on me. Go viral on me. Be my 5001st friend. Unleash your privacy to me. Let me touch your FourSquare and play with your Gowalla. Bend over and TechCrunch for me. Lick my USB stick. Pet my iPad. And, boy, you better Yelp if you like it. JASON GOLDBERG: "Want to get me going? Talk to me about your motherboard. Show me your hard drive." Remember back in high school when you wondered what would it be like if the geeks ruled? Wonder no more. Our time is now. The world's gone geek. Smart is the new sexy. Techie is the new model. I'm super-proud to be a gay geek and I'm thrilled to see other gay geeks rising up and showing themselves all over the world. As someone who's been working in technology companies for 15 years now, I must say that I used to feel like the only gay in the village. For a long time gay and geek didn't mix too well; the tech world was largely a straight-boys playground. But, in the last couple of years, all that has changed. Suddenly, geek is it. Now, I'm constantly hearing from gay guys who are starting their own technology companies or going to work for a startup. You can't go 30 minutes today without hearing someone talk about his or her favorite social network. And everyone I know would rather be working on the next social media game changer. And one thing that's really cool about all this is that smarts rule. In a geek-run world, there's nothing sexier than a smart guy who has his shit together. That rocks.

I thought I was trapped in hell! But there was a little light at the end of this tunnel. Queva Lutz was the owner of the bar--a small woman over 60 with fiery red hair who would entertain me with tales of how she gave great blowjobs and could fit into the same size dress she wore when she was 22. She was one of the smartest women I've ever known. COLEMAN DOMINGO RIFFS ON HIS RETURN TO NEW YORK, STRAIGHT BOYS IN THE WEST VILLAGE AND MISS GLADYS KNIGHT. COLEMAN DOMINGO "The clientele was mostly male but they were all straight. In the middle of the West Village? I thought I was trapped in hell! " One day she asked me if I would like to use the bar on Sundays for any theater events. When I sat in the empty bar with no customers from 1am� 4am I would write and on Sundays I would present material. I would write about what I was feeling about being a struggling artist in New York, trying to support my parents as their health deteriorated. I wrote about what felt like a second coming of age. I played a lot of the music that reminded me of home, helped me believe in love and eventually helped me heal [from] the loss of my parents. At 3am I would take a break and blast some Gladys Knight with the door open. One time, this down-on-her luck [queen] stumbled out of the Stonewall. She may have had 14 too many cocktails and was obviously to the point of blacking out. She leaned against the trash can in front of the bar. With trumpets blaring, Gladys sang out loud and strong, "You bring out the best in me/your love's rescued me/you righten up more wrongs/ brought me back where I belong." The disco beat was deafening but it was the only thing to keep me up till I closed the bar. This queen just leaned against the can and drank in the lyrics. When Gladys finished, the queen said, "Well, alright--I needed that shit," and pressed on. I smiled and played the song again, letting the music work on me as it did my late-night friend. I danced as if I were Live at the Roxy that night. I was living in this moment: Struggling as an artist in New York; an empty jazz bar, a messy queen and the belief that I can be all that I wanted to be. N Colman Domingo stars as Billy Flynn in Chicago on Broadway through July 18 and on The Big Gay Sketch Show Tuesdays on Logo. Visit ColmanDomingo.com for more info. I returned to New York in 2003 as an actor after working out in many of the armpits of America that held very lovely regional theaters. (San Francisco, an exception, was more of a fist holding patchouli and leftist politics than an armpit). In the city, I held jobs that would be flexible--i.e. bartending--and allowed me to continue my goal of making it in the most daring place on earth. On the last Sunday in June I was walking through the rubble of Pride--the throngs of black lesbians from the Bronx were cheering a girl on to dance and show her big 'ole titties in front of The Stonewall Inn. As I squealed with delight at the girl turning it up, a familiar voice called out my name: "Colman, Colman?" Standing in front of the 55 Bar was the most heterosexual man that I knew, selling beers out front to the boys and girls on the street. It was Zach Willis, a brilliant actor I worked with back in the Bay Area. I never in a million years would place him in this environment. He was sweaty and a little buzzed and making a lot of money selling beer for the 55 Bar, which I found out had been legendary for jazz music since 1919. He extended his hand in helping me land a job at 55 Bar and within two weeks I was working the shittiest shift a person could work. The whole operation was very much momand-pop that served jazz seven nights a week. The clientele was mostly male on most nights but the catch was they were all straight college guys. In 36 JUNE 18, 2010 BY SIMON DOONAN RESIDENT ALIEN n 1998 I wrote a book called Confessions of a Window Dresser and--whoosh--I was engulfed in a cloud of sequins and media adulation. Suddenly I was the toast of Manhattan, plastered across every magazine, yakking on every TV show. Overnight, I became a glamour gay, a telegenic nellie. I was out and loud and proud. Madonna snapped up the movie rights to Confessions and off to Los Angeles I went for a manic week of schmoozing and studio pitching. How fab was that? Very! Zipping from meeting to meeting, I felt like a cross between Kimora Lee and Susan Boyle, even though she hadn't happened yet. How had this happened to little old me? Somehow I had crawled out of the boonies, clawed my way to top of the cutthroat world of window dressing, and now--bam!--had hit the Hollywood mother lode. BRITISH WIT SIMON DOONAN INSPIRES THE QUEENS OF NEW YORK. I SIMON DOONAN: "Zipping from meeting to meeting, I felt like a cross between Kimora Lee and Susan Boyle, even though she hadn't happened yet." I flew back to New York and began rehearsing my Oscar speech, and waited. And waited. And then, guess what happened? Nothing! Nada. Nothing happened. And just like that the air went out of my Hollywood whoopie cushion. Fast. Cut to: 2005. I pull out my quill pen and toss off another memoir entitled Nasty. It focuses less on my window-dressing odyssey and more on my fabulously bonkers family. My expectations are zero. I learnt my Hollywood lesson on Confessions: Keep your dreams firmly zipped away inside your fanny pack and you wont be disappointed. No matter how much hot air was blasted up my dirndl skirt I was determined to stay grounded. Memo to me: Don't order sixteen haute couture chiffon body suits and a cerise-colored Bentley until the check clears! But then, out of the blue, Jon Plowman (he produced AbFab, Little Britain and The Office, amongst others) reads Nasty and announces that he wants to turn it into a comedy series. Before you can say "staple gun" Jonathan Harvey (of A Beautiful Thing) is writing the script and the BBC have given us the green light. What do you know? The series, Beautiful People, is a hit and the BBC green lights Season 2. The money is underwhelming but the karma is fierce; everyday I am deluged with sweet emails from anxious young gays who feel validated by the series. I start to think of myself as a kind of gay Albert Schweitzer. I thought it could get any better. But what do you know. One day I am snuggling in the gorgeous Greenwich Village apartment which I share with my husband, Jonathan Adler, and our child, a Norwich terrier named Liberace, when the phone jangles. Lisa Sherman from Logo is calling to tell me that Beautiful People is about to explode onto U.S. TV screens. I commend myself for not having given up my glam day job at Barneys, but toy with the notion of ordering a floor-length white mink brunch coat. The moral of the story? We gays are resilient bitches who, because of our marginalized status, are constantly reinventing ourselves. We are the chosen people. Sometimes we get unchosen but trust me, it's only a matter of time before we get chosen again. N Simon Doonan is the creative director of Barneys New York and a celebrated author and columnist.

BY JEFFREY SELF AND COLE ESCOLA JEFFERY: Cole, that's such a weird question. But yes, without a doubt. A Little Night Music sorta goes over my head anyway. You? COLE: I was just kidding, and P.S., I'm not sure. JEFFERY: Sheesh. Rue McClanahan and Dixie Carter are gone. Some Gay Pride, 2010. COLE: I think it was Colin Powell. JEFFERY: What was? COLE: That came up with the idea of Bernadette and Elaine together. I read it on CNN. On the news ticker. He's pretty miffed he wasn't invited to the Biden Super-Soaker BBQ. So he's just kind of immersing himself in Broadway right now. That was also on the CNN ticker. Those exact words. JEFFERY: I don't blame Colin Powell for any of his recent actions. Getting back to Gay Pride... COLE: Yes. Let's. JEFFERY: How pissed off is Debbie Reynolds right now? Remember how she claimed to be going into Night Music?! COLE: Oh, she's still saying it. She's going, "Oh, after Bernadette and Elaine. That was always the plan!" JEFFERY: Yeah! And she's stroking a hairless cat when she says it. If Debbie Reynolds had a cat it would totally be hairless. COLE: Speaking of Debbie Reynolds. Can I talk to the readers of this prestigious periodical privately for just one second? JEFFERY: I think they'd love that. COLE: Like will you go in the other room? JEFFERY: I'll go get a drink. [Jeffery walks away but not before winking at his reflection.] COLE: Okay. Now that Jeffery is gone... [Cole sits down in an enormous armchair that looks it used to be in an 18th century Scottish castle. It did.] COLE: I met Jeffery's grandma a few months ago when we were doing a show in Georgia and I got to witness a really cool moment when she connected with him by showing him photos from her honeymoon when they saw Debbie Reynolds' nightclub act in Hawaii. Jeffery was so excited to see the photos of his grandma with Debbie Reynolds. (My pants were wet in front too, I have to admit.) And Jeffery's grandma was so excited to have something that Jeffery liked. Let's hear it for Debbie Reynolds, gay icons and grandmas! [Jeffery returns from the bathroom, with an almost empty bottle of Yoo-Hoo. But not one of the small ones you get in a six-pack, a big one that is sold to be served to five or six people. He wipes his lips.] JEFFERY: I'm back. COLE: Good morning, Jeffery. JEFFERY: And the same to you, Mr. Escola. How'd you sleep? COLE: Same as always, not at all. You? JEFFERY: Haha. I stole some of my roommate's Vicodin. So... COLE: So you're feeling well? JEFFERY:Well...I'm feeling. So, Next Magazinehas graciously asked us to contribute to their Gay Pride issue so lets get started talking about some gay pride. Elaine and Bernadette in A Little Night Music, huh?! COLE: Talk about GAY and talk about PRIDE, right?! JEFFERY: Whoever came up with that idea deserves a city wide, thank you. COLE: Here's a thought. Would you sacrifice Bernadette and Elaine in A Little Night Music in order to have Rue for five more years? COLE ESCOLA: "Jeffery was so excited to see the photos of his grandma with Debbie Reynolds and Jeffery's grandma was so excited to have something that Jeffery liked." [Cole whistles like a construction worker or an inappropriate gym teacher.] JEFFERY: You know what I was just thinking in the kitchen, Cole? COLE: That cottage cheese oughta come with toys inside? JEFFERY: How, despite losing Dixie Carter and Rue McClanahan this year, we're gonna get to see two other bat-shit talented ladies like Bernandette and Elaine on a Broadway stage. I think, in the midst of all this Pride-ing we ought to take pride in these gals that we love so much. They're pretty special. Even Debbie Reynolds. Y'know? [Cole looks at you, the reader, and winks the way Jeffery winked at his reflection earlier.] [Music swells. The end] N Jeffrey & Cole Casserole Season Two debuts July 9 on Logo.

THE CREAM OF NEW YORK NIGHTLIFE IS ROCKING PRIDE WEEKEND LIKE IT'S THE FOURTH OF JULY. ALEGRIA PRIDE 2010 Nokia Theater, 1515 Broadway (@ W 44th St), 212-930-1950, AlegriaEvents.com. Sunday, June 27 at 11pm; $100. With M2 shuttered, Ric Sena and crew have moved their annual bacchanal to Times Square, where London's DJ Pagano and Madrid's DJs Chus and Ceballos spin all the way into Monday afternoon. How do you feel about moving the party to a new venue? "It's fantastic! The Nokia is still very bright and new, with a big, beautiful stage. It's a very wellequipped venue. There are places to dance outside the dance floor and a space for you to just hang out and look at the party. It's a lot less confining. And there's that great entrance with the big escalator and neon lights. It's a very Times Square vibe but definitely Alegria!" --Ric Sena WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM a Ric Sen MATIN�E NEW YORK The Beach at Governors Island, New York Harbor, MatineeNewYork.com. Saturday, June 26 from 6pm�12 midnight. $84�$138. A who's who of nightlife elite--including Rob Fernandez, Tommy Marinelli and Jake Resnicow, Josh Wood and Jared Needle--are teaming up with the Ibiza-based Matin�e Group to throw a one-of-a-kind outdoor circuit party on the beach at Governors Island. DJs Theresa and Taito Tikaro provide the beats, with a surprise guest giving a live performance later in the night. (Hint: she's an R&B Grammy winner and a majah icon!) How is having the party on an island in the middle of the harbor going to affect Matin�e's vibe? "[It's] the perfect venue to bring the Matin�e brand to New York. What's better than the biggest party in the world with the best city in the world as a backdrop? The lighting, the breeze and the sunset are all integral." --Jared Needle CLUBCONTROL Jared N eedle WORK: WELCOME 2 MENHATTAN Roseland Ballroom, 239 W 52nd St (btwn Broadway/Eighth Ave), 212-343-9090, PeterRauhofer.com. Saturday, June 26 from 10pm�noon. $80�$150. The name of the Pride edition of superstar DJ Peter Rauhofer's monthly dance makes it pretty clear who it's aimed at. In addition to the Austrian spinner, the party features sets from DJs Ana Paula, Stephan Grondin and Marco Da Silva. The theme of our Pride issue is liberty and freedom. What right is the most important one to you? "Everyone should have the right to decide [whom] they want to marry. Right now this is the most important issue regarding `freedom.'" --Peter Rauhofer NEXT > > > a Peter R uhofer 70 JUNE 18, 2010 DANCE ON THE PIER Pier 54, 13th St (@ West Side Hwy), NYCpride.org. Sunday, June 27 from 4pm�10:30pm; $75 in advance/$100 general admission. They might be straight, but British electro-duo The Freemasons are no strangers to gay music--they've reworked tracks for everyone from Beyonc� to Kylie, and spun at the White Party in Palm Springs. They're headlining Heritage of Pride's official dance this year, with an opening set from DJ Steven Oliveri. Do you plan a different set for gay parties than for straight or mixed nights? "What we love most about gay events is the appreciation of a great vocal--and the joint love we seem to have with the crowd of that moment in a record when a searing melody crosses a moving chord change. That's something that is often lost on straight crowds. People often forget that dance music's natural habitat is a gay party." --Russell Small, The Freemasons Russell S mall DESIRE: A MASQUERADE Capitale, 130 Bowery (@ Grand St), 212-334-5500, LeeChappell.com. Friday, June 25 10pm�4am; $25 in advance/ $30 general admission. The typical Pride weekend costume involves the least amount of clothing you can legally wear. But Lee Chappell and Chris Ryan are mixing things up with a Mardi Gras-inspired bash, where guests don masquerade attire. (The best outfit nabs $500!) DJs Hector Fonseca and Alyson Calagna spin on the main level while upstairs on the second floor, Shien Lee and Muffinhead present their acclaimed den of decadence, Dances of Vice. What surprises can we expect at Desire? "Oh Land will be making her American debut with us. She actually performs all of the music [herself ] and is a marvelously talented performer with a style that reminds me of many artists from the'80s-- Erasure, Howard Jones, Prince." --Lee Chappell ppell Lee Cha DESTINATION: PRIDE Pacha, 618 W 46th St (btwn 11th/12th Aves), 212-209-7500, PachaNYC.com. Sunday, June 27 from 10pm�8am; $40 in advance/$50 general admission While DJs Tony Moran, Manny Lehman and Mario Calegari are taking turns at this A-list dance, gay-fave DJ Susan Morabito will be pulling an all-nighter, spinning from 10pm�8am upstairs in Pachita. How are you going to manage a ten-hour set? We're exhausted just thinking about it! "I make sure I get plenty of sleep, eat well and drink lots of Red Bull. I've played long hours like this many times--I prefer it [because] it gives me room to really stretch out and take the crowd to a variety of interesting places." --Susan Morabito Susan M orabito THE BEAT GOES ON Love, 40 W Eighth St (@ MacDougal St), 212-477-5683, MusicIsLove.net. Monday, June 28 from 9am�9pm; $25. Leave it to legendary beat machine Junior Vasquez to skip Pride weekend altogether and throw a party on Monday, June 28. With sets by Ruben Vega and Razor and Guido, the night also doubles as a release party for Junior's new album, Nervous Breakdown 2. (All ticketholders get a free copy!) What excuse should we give our bosses to get out of work on Monday? "A lot of us are already out of work this year! Besides, you know it's worth taking off work to come hear Junior work! I've been truly inspired recently and you can clearly hear that in the music, in my sets. This is the Junior you've all been waiting for--or so I've heard." --Junior Vasquez asquez Junior V JUNE 18, 2010 71 Sarah McLachlan THERIGHTTRACK BY KEO NOZARI lo Rida is gonna have a serious summer hit on his hands thanks in part to super producer David Guetta. "Club Can't Handle Me" is going to give clubs plenty to handle in the coming weeks. Given the song has a similar vibe to Guetta's work on Black Eyed Peas' "I Estelle Gotta Feeling" (and Guetta's track record with hot summer songs) we're seeing some major play coming. The song--slated for Flo Rida's third studio album, The Only One--will also be a single for the Step Up 3D soundtrack. After an adventure on the freakish side with her bitch track, "Freak," Estelle returns to form with brand-new "Fall in Love." Fans of her huge 2008 hit "American Boy" will undoubtedly swoon over this R&B jam. In addition to the Estelle-only original, there are two other versions of this breezy summer-lover song: one with Nas adding some rap edge and one with John Legend dueting (which makes sense as it's his label, HomeSchool Records, that Estelle is signed to). However, we wish they were all on the song together! "Fall in Love" is from Estelle's third album, All of Me, coming later this year. Speaking of breezy summer songs from females we love, it's a welcome return for Sarah McLachlan. After a seven-year absence she's back with a new album, Laws of Illusion, and first up is single "Loving You Is Easy." Loving the song is easy with its sweet sentiment and a musical vibe comparable to "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles (who is herself a clear disciple of McLachlan). Throughout McLachlan remains in great form vocally, and her time away hasn't rusted her sharp writing skills either. Full of imagery of breaking illusions, McLachlan's songs express longing to discover deeper love, shed past mistakes and uncover true joy. Standouts include catchy "Out of Tune," bluesy "Rivers of Love," and the sullen, beautiful ballad "Forgiveness" (reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt on "I Can't Make You Love Me "). Recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with McLachlan's longtime collaborator/producer, Pierre Marchand, the album is an exquisitely written and produced effort. It doesn't cover new F MUSIC Having just returned from Orlando, Fla. where he launched the 2010 GayDays Tour, DJ Randy Bettis is playing the Muscle Bear Sea Tea on June 25 and SandBlast in Asbury Park on July 17. WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM ground for McLachlan per se--and the album is a bit too homogenous in its feel--but it will surely satisfy the hungry fans who've waited seven years. The album's release comes just weeks from the kickoff of Lilith Fair 2010--the famed all-women touring festival co-founded by McLachlan-- which became one of the highestgrossing touring festivals in the world. The latest incarnation features appearances by huge stars in various cities including Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Heart and, oddly enough, Ke$ha. Lilith Fair hits New York City's PNC Bank Arts Center on July 31.

JUNE 18, 2010 73 ARIES (MARCH 21�APRIL 20) GEMINI (MAY 22�JUNE 21) LEO (JULY 24�AUGUST 23) Sentimental and sympathetic feelings penetrate your well-armored shell. Friends need a shoulder to cry on and lovers need a rescue; play hero to them all. Put your better qualities to use! Advances made to get attention from lovers or set up affairs on the side won't work. Put your energy to better use helping an organization that works for the greater good. TAURUS (APRIL 21�MAY 21) Remind everyone that hope is not lost and that dreams can come true. You must lead by example; remind others that imagination is key and unlocking it is easier than once thought! CANCER (JUNE 22�JULY 23) Try to make everyone a little happier. A little compassion goes a long way. Loosen up those uptight individuals who have a gentle core but have a hard time releasing it on their own. Intuition and sensitivity are in abundance; swim in memories of loves that didn't last and dreams that drifted away. Reconnect with them and you may find they weren't so far away after all. When faced with excess energy focus on doing some good for your community. Speak on behalf of a rising star or politician with the influential sway that comes naturally to you. VIRGO (AUGUST 24�SEPTEMBER 23) WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24�OCTOBER 23) PISCES (FEBRUARY 20�MARCH 20) Romantic movies, sad songs and photo albums can create and remedy the blues. Reach out to old friends and catch up with family. Reconnect with your inner spark; remember who you are. It may feel as if everyone's gone soft. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! The past plays its part in catching up with you, clean up loose ends and see how far you've come. If you're afraid of opening up and revealing deep experiences or feelings to the wrong person, don't fret. Taking that big step matters, and trust takes time to build, especially in yourself! The heavy-handed approach won't work right now. Get in touch with your softer side--it's not showing vulnerability; it's showing you're human. Join the cause and work with a team! Intellectual breakdowns allowed this week! Let yourself be loved and cared for by someone trustworthy; recall what it's like to feel safe. A special someone inspires you. Try not to get swept away with the tide of emotions flowing all around you from everyone you meet. Protect yourself from overload; reconnect with home and family. It's important!

THE ELBORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY THE BURNT PART BOYS THIS ONE GIRL'S STORY shaping and streamlining to bring out more grit and reality that's clearly waiting to be uncovered. Town Hall got off to a spectacular summer on June 4 with Boom!, starring the phenomenally talented sisters Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway. Featuring songs from the Baby-Boomer youth era of the 1960s, the Callaways, directed by Dan Foster, were in amazing voice as they breezed through songs made famous by The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder and many more. N The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity plays through June 20 at 2econd Stage (305 W 43rd St, 212-246-4422). BY DAVID HURST recent finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Kristoffer Diaz's The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity should have won the award instead of Next to Normal. A brilliantly conceived expos� of America that examines class, race, economics and greed through the prism of professional wrestling, Deity is a metaphorical work that's as brilliantly entertaining as it is ferociously condemning. Who would have guessed so much of the American soul and psyche could be seen in the day-to-day fakery that is professional wrestling? But Diaz did and, with the help of a superb cast that includes standout performances from Desmin Borges, Usman Ally and Terrence Archie, he exposes it for us all to see in its unashamed, malevolent decadence. How fabulously American of him. A co-production of Playwrights Horizons and The Vineyard Theater, The Burnt Part Boys was a disappointing new musical that failed to catch fire and closed last weekend. With a repetitive, bluegrass-folk�inspired score by Chris Miller (music) and Nathan Tysen (lyrics) and a meandering book by Mariana Elder, director Joe Calarco did his best to keep the story of brothers in 1962 West Virginia coal-country moving, but to no avail. By turns sluggish and nonsensical, The Burnt Part Boys made me feel like I was the one trapped in a mine. Gayfest NYC 2010 ended its fourth-annual festival with a new musical by Dionne McClain-Freeney (music and lyrics) and Bil Wright (book) that was directed and choreographed by the talented Devanand Janki. Inspired by the proud life of Sakia Gunn, This One Girl's Story boasts the extraordinary storyline of a group of African-American and Latina lesbians from Newark who face the aftermath of violence when one of them is killed. Just from the rarity of its characters and plot alone, This One Girl's Story deserves to be nurtured and supported. Fortunately, much of the pop-, jazz- and gospel-infused score is tuneful and much of the cast were quite good, even though the book needs WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM A EVERYDAY RAPTURE SHERIE RENE SCOTT TAKE YOU THERE UPTOWN EXPRESS THIS ONE GIRL'S STORY PHOTO: GUSTAVO MONROY; CHAD DEITY PHOTO: JOAN MARCUS As much of a goddess on disc as she is live in a theater, Sherie Rene Scott serves up a high dose of "fabulousness" on the recording of her smash semi-autobiographical show, Everyday Rapture for Ghostlight.

(Decca Broadway) 92 JUNE 18, 2010 WHAT THE LORD GIVETH THE LORD TAKETH AWAY Tyler Barrick and Spencer Jones in 8: The Mormon Proposition. REEL LOVE he gay community responded to the passing of California's anti-gaymarriage initiative, Proposition 8--and its major funding by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints--in many ways. Protests, rallies and legal action were all inspired retaliation to this modern symbol of hate. Much of that anger is channeled into Miami news anchor turned filmmaker Reed Cowan's aggressive doc, 8: The Mormon Proposition (Red Flag Releasing). Narrated by Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black--who himself was raised Mormon--the film follows the LDS Church's hypocritical fight to keep marriage defined as between a man and a woman in fear it would contradict their faith's teachings. We watch the union of a young--though at times disappointingly disingenuous-seeming--gay Mormon couple, Tyler Barrick and Spencer Jones, after the state's Supreme Court ruling in the couple's favor all the way through the costliest proposition battle in California history, to Prop 8's passing. However, the awkwardly tacked-on third act, which briefly explores the larger Mormon war against gays in the form of teen suicide, brainwashing and institutionalized torture hints at a whole different movie altogether. Of course, 8 is a deserving agenda documentary, a direct rebuttal to years of well-funded and manipulative Mormon attacks and an attempt to expose the Church's devious doings with shocking fact. It's just too bad few who could benefit from learning the truth will probably ever see the film. --Benjamin Solomon Time Investment: 78 min.

STONEWALL UPRISING T 94 JUNE 18, 2010 NEXT > > > FILM WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM t's shocking, but the Stonewall riots that took place in June of 1969 have never received proper documentary treatment on film. Sure there are films about life before Stonewall and after, but none about the climate leading up to it and the events that unfolded on those historic summer nights. That's why Kate Davis and David Heilbroner's new film, Stonewall Uprising (First Run Features), is such a magnificent glimpse into history, one all Americans need to see and understand as their own. Using video, photos and interviews with historians, rioters and even cops, the couple paints a vivid picture of a 1969 New York succumbing to political I scapegoating. The anger that spewed out from the street kids was ripe for harvesting that near-full-moon evening when the overwhelmed police actually barricaded themselves in Stonewall as the crowds got too big. Stonewall may not have changed the world's view of gays overnight, but as one rioter remarks, "It was our Rosa Parks moment." What's most enlightening about Uprising is what has changed and what hasn't. When the characters describe "street kids who had nothing to lose" they could easily be talking about the hordes of kids who still clamber down Christopher Street today. Gays may have fused themselves with American culture and gained visibility many never thought possible, but sadly, equality is still not won for all. But if gays in 1969 could tell the Mafia and the cops "no more," gays of today sure can do the same. --BS THE LAW DON'T STAND A CHANCE Protesters in Stonewall Uprising THE SCORE n running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack or last. You can say, `I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that." Those words of wisdom came from Fred Lebow, the co-founder of the New York City Marathon. His sentiments are echoed by Rob Lennon, the president of Front Runners New York, the local gay running club that has been "keeping gay and lesbian runners on their toes for over 30 years." Lennon has been with the club for the past seven of them. Every week, you'll find him shakin' a leg at the Front Runners' Saturday Morning Fun Run. While you may be sitting on your couch watching cartoons, the Front Runners are out in Central Park, dripping with perspiration and endorphins as they take the loop. These Adidas-wearing dandies meet up at the Rutgers Presbyterian Church on West 73rd Street just before the 10am run. They drop off their bags and hit the pavement. When they return, it's bagels and coffee all around, thanks to the generosity of some member. And for those who want more (running, not bagels that is), there is another weekly Fun Run at 7pm on Wednesday nights. FRONT RUNNERS NEW YORK: JUST DOIN' IT!

At least at Sora Lella, it's an absolute pleasure. The restaurant named after chef Mauro Trabalza's grandmother opened last year in Manhattan to celebrate the anniversary of the opening of his family's restaurant in Rome 50 years ago. Sora Lella's memory is proudly, lovingly captured here with so many Roman dishes steeped in history. When in Rome...well, we had a little dolce vita via a smooth Brunello di Montalcino ($16/glass) that we could have drank all night. A bubbly Sora Lella Cocktail ($13) featured Aperol, Campari, gin and fizz from prosecco, like a light Italian wine cooler. Sweet Polpettine ($12), Nonna's veal meatballs, featured raisins and pine nuts in tomato sauce and we devoured them quickly. The Caprese ($14) was a deconstructed version of the classic salad, and each element was as good on its own as they were combined together: chilled tomato aspic with balsamic had a smattering of rock salt as an anchor, the trickle of basil pesto tickled us and creamy mozzarella di bufala was a thrill. Insalata "Campo de' Fiori" ($11), a salad of mixed greens, was laden with a tasty anchovy vinaigrette and topped with slivers of nutty pecorino, which all served as a marvelous preface to the sampling of our quartet of pastas: terrific homemade Gnocchi di patate all'Amatriciana ($18), the little pillows served with pork jowl and shaved pecorino; Ravioli a Cacio e Pepe ($18) with lots of cheese, fresh ground black pepper and a nice addition of mint; Tonnarelli alla Cuccagna ($18), a recipe dating back to 1961, boasted 18 ingredients including sausage, cured pork belly and walnut while the pasta itself was firm but tender, just the kind of noodle you love to eat; and sumptuous Rigatoni alla Carbonara ($18) made us incredibly cross-eyed, featuring the full flavor of pancetta with egg, Parmigiano and black pepper. Absolutely delicious! Desserts were a foregone conclusion I guess, as the shockingly good Chocolate Salami ($10) with walnuts and almonds was thrust upon us while we marveled over Pistachio Gelato ($14).

Is he missing or just advertising? MANUEL: Rod, Sorry for being M.I.A., but I just got back from porn rehab (and, boy, are my arms tired). ROD: The perfect segue for this title! Who hasn't hooked up with a hot stranger on vacation? Diego Cruz cruises the wrong hombre when he picks up Pavlvs Guell off the streets of Barcelona. Cruz ends up bound and gagged-- not in the fun way. MANUEL: Guell can kidnap me any day. This masculine Argentinean top oozes sex (all over Cruz's face, in fact). Guell hikes down his jeans and backs his smooth, meaty ass onto Cruz's face ROD: JACK: before taking him doggie style, alternating between fucking and eating Cruz's gaping hole. ROD: Lucas knows there's always time to get your dick sucked, even on a rescue mission, so he uses his big uncut hard-on to interrogate Bruno Jones. (Anything for a lead). But my fave was beefy Jean Franko going at it with Jonathan Agassi, who gets tied up under a pier. MANUEL: Missing is Agassi's stab at action-hero stardom. Despite back-alley pursuits, fights and even Agassi jumping off a pier into the sea to escape the bad guys, there's one kind of action this sexy Israeli does best: versatile sex. He swaps rimjobs and backdoor blowjobs with spit-hungry Rueda and even cums in his own mouth as he's getting fucked heels-over-head. You've never seen Tom Cruise do that! (At least, not in public.) MANUEL: ROD: THE SPLAT EFFECT SHOOTING BLANKS BETTER OFF BLUE-BALLED WWW.NEXTMAGAZINE.COM BOOTSAND BONDAGE Jalifstudio/Lucas Entertainment, 1-888, 5629125, JalifStudio.com, LucasEntertainment.com F oot worship, spitting, piss, cigars and more--Boots and Bondage ain't no vacation in Barcelona! ROD: Even if you're not into leather, Aitor Crash and Nicos Casanova are so hot you can't help being into them. With boot licking, rimming and sucking, there's something for everyone. MANUEL: Casanova is the sexiest in this cast, especially with assless, crotchless leather pants, but his cigar-smoke foreplay did nothing for me. However, Crash puffing on Casanova's uncut perfecto (so sloppy it left the camera lens wet)-- that's second-hand smoke I'll gladly inhale. Casanova uses increasingly larger dildos to prepare Crash's manhole for what can only be described as an industrial-sized ass funnel. Seeing it sticking out of Crash's hole, I did a double take before realizing he was getting a beer enema and not shitting an Ikea lampshade. ROD: Then there's the "JpasexDeluxe." This crazy apparatus is part sex machine, part medieval torture device and part Bowflex. Macanao Torres harnesses bald, bearded leather daddy Cristian Torrent to the contraption and does several sets on his ass. I'd love to give that machine a run for its money. MANUEL: According to Jpasex.com, that'll be a $34,000 run! Torres got his money's worth, fucking Torrent while pissing inside him. ROD: The hottest are Hugo Costa and Ruben Rodriguez in the final sling-fuck scene, handcuffs and all. If rimming on a sex machine have ever figured into your fantasies, then this is your dream come true! "HOW ABOUT A SHINE�R?"
